The 21st century has seen new twists to these old themes and an increased attention to the application of ethics to practical problems. Each of these major questions is considered in this book, in terms of meta-ethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics.< Less

So conflict (war), reasoned Hegel, is an instrument of progress.< Less

More > the more general context of observing the causes and consequences of the transition from traditional pre-industrial life to modern societies. The fundamental postulate of sociology is that human beings act not by their own free decisions taken rationally, but under the influence of history and culture, and the expectations and demands of others: human beings are both the products and the makers of their societies. During the 20th century, sociologists have been particularly interested in the influence of role, status, class, and power on experience and behaviour, in the family and in the community; in the factors which contribute to cohesion and conflict; in social structure and social stratification; and in social problems such as crime, drug addiction, and domestic violence.< Less

More > science, psychology, sociology and philosophy. Frequently included are those areas of education that deal with the social contexts of learning and the relation of the school to the social order. History is regarded by many as a social science, and certain areas of historical study are almost indistinguishable from work done in the social sciences. The study of comparative law may also be regarded as a part of the social sciences, although it is ordinarily pursued in schools of law rather than in departments or schools containing most of the other social sciences. Change on different levels (social dynamics in everyday life, short-term transformations and long-term developments in society at large) has become the focus of attention.< Less

More > the island’s political situation and its people’s financial problems. Cyprus has always been strategically important for the various tyrannical old Empires; hence the reason why Cyprus was colonized for more than two and a half thousand years. A Mycenaean colony in the 14th century BC, it was ruled successively by the Assyrian, Persian, Roman, and Byzantine empires. Richard I of England conquered it in 1191 and sold it to the French Crusader Guy de Lusignan under whom it became a feudal monarchy. An important base for the Crusades, it eventually came under the control of Italian trading states, until in 1571 it fell to the Ottoman Empire. It remained part of the Ottoman Empire until 1879, when it was placed under British administration. It was formally annexed by Britain in 1914 and in 1925 declared a crown colony.< Less
